UPDATED: AUG 27, 2004 (Bottle) Pours a light brown body with an off-white head that dispates quickly. Smells like opening a cheap box of chocolate covered cherries that are sold during the Christmas holiday season. Taste of cheap chocolate and canned cherry pie filling. Not an enjoyable flavor for a beer.

clear dark ruby red, thin beige head, rich chocolate cover cherry aroma like the candy, rich chocolate flavor with a great candy cherry character, matches the aroma and the candy very well, just enough beer character to keep it in the beer family, the best you could hope from a cherry chocolate beer,

Tmoney99 (10596) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 10, 2005
Mothers Day tasting. Bottle. Poured a reddish brown with a small off-white head. Aroma and flavor of cherry and chocolate. Light body with little finish, which was not like a sweet fruit brew. Weak version of style.

Murky reddish-brown with a small head.This beer has a chocolate nose with a hint of cherry.It has alotta chocolate cherry flavor, but not much beer flavors to it. Its nothing I would want to drink more than a couple times a year.

BeerandBlues2 (9607) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - JUL 23, 2012
Bottle. Pours clear dark amber with a small, fizzy white head, short retention with no lacing. Aroma is chocolate and cherry dominant with light cookie malt, and earthy hops. Flavor is chocolate and cherry dominant with a dry finish. Light body and carbonation.

daknole (9058) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAR 20, 2009
Bottle from strykzone. Pours a reddish brown with a very small head. Aroma is certainly what the beer says, cherries and chocolate. Flavor has both as well, but it is a bit muddled and weak. I didn’t mind it as much as some, but it was a tad artificial and could have been done with a bit more care.

adnielsen (9032) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 4, 2010
Tasted from a bottle at the Parade of Darks in Denver, Colorado. Hazy orange appearance reminiscent of a German Hefeweizen. Smells like those Hershey kisses with the cherry crap inside. Really in your face aroma. Thin wheat body that’s mostly dominated by the cherries and especially chocolate. Not chocolate malts, real chocolate. Very sweet finish.

hopdog (8886) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 29, 2005
Bottle acquired in trade with beerhandy. Poured a medium, hazy, reddish brown color with a larger sized off white head. Aromas of chocolate covered cherries (who would have guessed?). Tastes of the same. Just like my grandfathers favorite chocolate covered cherry candy. Weaker and thin body. Interesting.

Dogbrick (8035) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 12, 2008
Bottle at Growlers Pub West in St. Louis. The beer is a dark reddish-brown color with a medium thin light beige head that recedes quickly. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma similar to a cherry Tootsie Pop. Medium-bodied and sweet with cherry and chocolate flavors, plus a touch of malt. The finish is artificial cherry sweetness that does not linger long. Overall this one did not really click with me.
